Hello everyone

My name ist Michael Weichhardt. Iam an official taoist and inheritor of wudang sangfengpai. In short terms this means i can officially spread taoism and wudang philosophy because of my long and devoted studies. I devoted my whole life to taoism and now that i understand more, i feel its my duty to share this to people who seek the truth.

Living long time in wudang mountains (i also added a video here about my place and wudang) in full isolation i started to write a book for western people to share my experience with them. I realized that taoism is still very unknown in western countries. And sometimes it is described like taoism is magic, but taoism is actually the opposite. It is the philosphy of understanding, and make yourself and others live in harmony. Learn how you can share peace and harmony with others and learn how to help and benefit from eachother.

I will also include my own version of the taoistic bible the "daodejing"(81 chapters) Because the old taoistic writing is very hard to understand if you are not fully knowledgeable about the culture and taoism. I explain this to people as easy as possible and still leaving room to find your own path.

Here is a quote from my book:

Something is formed in the chaos, which existed before heaven and earth.
It is quiet and profound.
It stands alone and alters not.
It revolves eternally without exhaustion.
It is regarded as the Mother of all beings.
I do not know Its name, except to call It Tao.
When forced to give It a name, I would call It “the Great.”
The Great is far-reaching.
Far-reaching is infinite.
Infinite is to return to the self-sufficient origin.
Therefore, Tao is great, heaven is great, earth is great, and so is the true-self.
There are four greatness in the universe, and true-self is one of them.
Man models the Way of earth;
Earth models the Way of heaven;
Heaven models the Way of Tao;
Tao models the Way of nature.


Learning the principles of Life, Heaven and Earth is very much needed in modern life.
People dont know how stress and unbalanced life can harm you.
In my book i also explain the traditional taoistic exercises (taichi, qigong, neidan..)  of good health and long life.

I believe that iam one of the first taoists that actually bring this kind of knowledge in an understandable and traditional way.

Publishing a book in western country is expensive. If the fund raising is successfull the book will be published in german and english on the international market. I dont want third parties to alter my experience in any way.
I think to people in modern life it is needed to share my experience and the old traditional  teachings of taoism to make everyone achieve a peacefull and fullfilling life in harmony.

My deadline is end of august, till then i must make the publishing of my book, because i plan to go back to wudang mountain and continue my life long studies.

Many people seeking the truth or purpose. I want to make everyone who is seeking able to understand the taoism life-philosphy. It is about yourself, how to make yourself living in a more quality way and achieving good health and long life.

The more funds i can collect the higher quality the book can be. For high quality publishing iam in need of 3800 EUR.

You might have realized all western taoism books come from paid western translators. Here iam sharing my own experience with you. I want to tell with my knowledge the truth about taoism and iam sure this is needed today.

Thank you for every supporter, i believe thats the way of dao.
